Spectacle Island

Apr 1, 2008
There is nothing quite so fulfilling as seeing a thrilled and exciting child. Imagine, if you will, that you have been in the planning process of your next great vacation getaway. Your kids get off the school bus and you sit them down to tell them about it. Instead of telling them, "We're going back to the beach again this year," which would make them very happy, you tell them that you are going to a faraway city on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean where there are parks, restaurants and kids museums. Then you tell them that you will be going from there to a majestic island with all kinds of sea and animal life. What you are basically telling them is that their next vacation getaway will be a magical wonderland of adventure. This will take them far beyond the stage of being very happy and into the world of being thrilled and excited. As you read this, you can picture their faces when the journey before them is being revealed. That alone is worth the cost of any vacation.

This imaginary vacation paradise does not merely have to be a wonderland, a mythic place in your children's and your imaginations any more. It actually exists in the historical city of Boston Massachusetts on the famed Spectacle Island in the Boston Harbor area. Spectacle Island is a real island off the shores of Boston. It is not so large that one would have to worry about getting lost, but not so small as to seem cramped either. At just over one hundred acres, Spectacle Island is the perfect size for the full family adventure. The island is a treasure trove of things to do and see for everyone.

There is a majestic marina here where the entire family can experience an thrilling aquatic adventure and see hundreds of varieties of strange and unusual undersea wildlife, such as the massive lobsters that have made the North Eastern Coast so famous over the years. There are endless breeds of clawed, finned, and tentacle creatures to marvel at.

After that, you can take the kids for a good long walk on one of the many miles of available walking trails that Spectacle Island has. These are amazing walks in that the countryside around you gives an intriguing mix of tropical and mainland plant life and trees. There is a large mix of bird life to be seen here also, as well as the occasional wild land animal that crosses your path. The best part of all the trails is that they each lead to a hill that stretches over one hundred and fifty feet into the sky. The view here is nothing short of breathtaking.

Whether you know it or not, your children are always dreaming of exotic wonderlands and adventure quests. Why don't you take them on one this year and prove that their dreams can really come true at Spectacle Island in Boston Massachusetts.
